You have registered a domain name and now you are wondering how to use a domain name.
It is really easy and let me explain to you how it works.
When you register a domain name, you are taking the domain name off the market.
It gets registered under your name or company name & only you have rights to use it.
If you would like to use it for email accounts or for your website you will need to buy a web hosting service.
